TEXAS HILL COUNTRY -- Two people on board a small plane were killed after their plane crashed in a remote area between Llano and Burnet.

DPS officials say the single-engine plane that originated from Kerrville, crashed around 3:30 Saturday afternoon near a home and pasture off Highway 29 & Ranch Road 2241.

The victims have been identified as 54-year-old Scott Belt from Kerrville and 51-year-old Bobby Luker from Bertram.

Belt was the owner and instrutcer at Learn 2 Fly, a flight school in Kerrville.

Llano County Airport managers told KVUE -- KENS 5's sister station in Austin -- that the two men may have stopped in the area for lower priced gas and were heading back to Kerrville when their plane went down.

FAA officials who are taking over the investigation say, the aircraft was not in contact with their controllers but that is normal procedure with these types of aircraft.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
